Nia (ニア, Niyah) is the tritagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2.


Nia and Dromarch in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Nia is a Gormotti Driver from Gormott Providence, accompanied by her Special Blade, Dromarch. Together they went on the run from the Indoline Praetorium until they were rescued by Jin and offer her to join his organization, Torna. During a salvaging mission with Jin, Malos, and Rex, when they reach a room containing the Aegis Pyra, she witnesses Jin kill Rex after touching Pyra's sword, prompting her and Dromarch to defect to the recently revived Rex's side and the first people to join him on his and Pyra's journey to reach Elysium. Eventually, it is revealed that Nia is a blade who was merged with the corpse of her former driver’s daughter. After the reveal, she can be freely switched between blade and driver forms.
